a emergency it is more about politics. >>neil: i don't know the history of these things during the election years, maybe the entertainment media is so big today. he figured, and who am i to know, if i meet with one i have to meet with 11 others and i'm not going to meet with any. maybe that was the rationale. what do you think? >>guest: i think he was afraid to meet with any of them. he would be afraid of meeting with prime minister binyamin netanyahu because this would be a report they didn't get along. that impacts with jewish voters. he would meet with morsi and maybe not be able to be as hard as he would like and that impacts other people watching our relationship with egypt. any meeting he would have with anyone there could have been some risk something negative would come out so rather than meeting with anyone at all, go on "the view" and hope we can garner more votes. >>neil: i will get into the political questions with ed henry, but i want to raise where the political risk would be going ahead and meeting with netanyahu and going ahead and telling the new president of egypt, where d
, adjunct fellow at the manhattan institute. >>guest: it was the speech of a president running if re-election, not a hint of apology for america for the values in this speech, a lot of toughness, there was almost a focus only on the middle east and the muslim world. no mention of china, russia, the other trouble spots. it was all, fellow, here is what we expect of you. pull up your socks. let's cut the whining about outrage. look at your responsibilities to your people, to free speech, to the values of the united nations and to our values. he set some standards. >>shepard: he was tougher in this speech against those in the muslim world whom you mentioned than he has been in previous addresses. >>guest: very much so. there was no islam is a great religion, none of that today. there was just a statement about how important it is for these new countries feeling their way, led by new men, to get a handle on the violence that threatens the presence of americans in their country. one thing you said that intrigued me, he said we want to stay, we want to help you, we don't want to dictate, we want di
significant right now? >> he has more than 40 days to go before this election, but keep in mind that the presidential debates, a series of presidential debates in that vice presidential debate gets going next week. so he doesn't have a whole lot of time on the ground to persuade swing state voters like here in ohio that he needs them on his side, and you can see he has this economic message behind me right now in big letters on that sign. it says we need a real recovery. he has been fine-tuning his economic message all morning long. trying to reconnect with voters in this stais state. he said at a hearing in the western of the state that his heartaches for people who are struggling in this economy. take a listen to a little bit of what he had to say earlier this morning. >> there is so many in our country that are hurting right now. i want to help them. he know what it takes to get an economy going again and creating jobs. i know a lot of folks that have jobs wonder how they can make ends meet until the end of the month and put food on the table until the -- >> and it's not just
attack before the election against iran to stop its nuclear program? these are the major questions. martha: that is to the heart of it. that is what benjamin netanyahu said, wait, wait for what? this is the crux of the tension between the two. ed, thanks so much. be back to you in a little while. bill: we want to get back to carl cameron. you know what is on the plate, whether it is egypt, or iran's nuclear program, the dust-up with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. do you know from the campaign whether or not governor romney will address any of this or all of it or stay away? >> reporter: in the clinton global initiative he will larkly focus on issues he was sort of asked to speak about which is international development. he has specific ideas. linking foreign aid to opening up developing markets around the world when it comes to partisan combat and criticism president no doubt mitt romney has plenty to see about it. while he might temper his remark as little bit because this is bill clinton event and supposed to be nonpartisan there will be plenty of later today in a ral
it be disastrous for the country if mitt romney were elected? >> well, you know, i think america is so strong, and we've got so much going for us, that we can survive a lot. and, but the american people don't want to just survive. we want everybody to thrive. we want folks to have a shot. and so, the question just becomes whose policies are more likely to lead us to where we want to go? >> now, when the first lady was asked whether she'd ever consider running for president, she said she didn't have the patience for the job. the president agreed, which could get dicey at home. mitt romney will have another chance to hammer the president on foreign policy matters this morning. the gop challenger will speak at the clinton global initiative meeting in two hours. here's a sample of what we can expect. >> he says the developments in the middle east are bumps in the road. these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives. these are developments we do not want to see. this is time for the president who will shape events in the middle east, not just be merciful or be at mercy of the events in the
election-season line against iran. the cold realty is that after nearly four years of failed diplomacy and half-hearted sanctions that he opposed until congress forced his hand, neither iran nor israel believe him. he talked about diplomacy but that time is not unlimited. is that enough? i mean, don't republicans have a point here? >> it is hard to tell. i think "the wall street journal" was trying to give him a left-handed compliment. he was very firm yesterday and he was very clear. you know, i think diplomacy, in general, is a business of nuance. but yesterday he was about as firm and clear and it was a very beautiful defense of american policy or freedom of speech. he was very clear on the nuclear issue and thought he spoke beautifully about chris stevens. i think the editorial opinion this morning is very favorable to him. >> and to your point, i think he did speak very clearly. he did speak very forcefully and beautifully. but i think what republicans are saying is to what end? we have been speaking beautifully about these topics for four years now and the centrifuges are still t
